    Near the ATL and in SoWal as often as possible
    I can no longer see the "Thanks" I've received under "Settings." Where are they?

    While I'm at it, how can I get rid of the remnants of the messages in "My Profile" for which I've deleted the content, yet the ghosts of the messages still remain.

    Thanks and reputation have been turned off. Waiting to hear some feedback on whether peeeps want it back or not.

    When you delete a visitor message you see the "deleted" message, but other folks do not.

    I agree with Kitty. I missed it at first, but I think it cut down on interaction.

    Why not have the visitors messages just plain deleted?

    I liked the thanks button, but thought the reputation thing unnecessary.

    And smilies on the main reply. My smilie usage has dropped considerably now that I have to go "advanced" and then open up another window to add them.

    Smilies? SMILIES?

    Ohhhhhh...I thought those were "similes" as in...

    "Giving Miss Kitty, DD, and Scooter the "thanks" button back on Sowal would be like giving a can of gas and a match to a pyromaniac"

    HA HA HA HA HA!!!

    I liked the "thanks" button too. It was short and to the point.

    All those things, the rep, the thanks, the stats make the site more interesting and colorful. They give the poster more of an identity, especially if they switch avatars. They're still recognizable and it's not just a name.

    They helped give you more of a sense of the poster and helped you evaluate their recommendations, but it also was a little too high school popularity contest at times IMO.

    I think listing the number of images is unnecessary, but post numbers, location, and join date is good.

    Miss the thanks button as nice as a way to say thank you for useful information, but I think it got used as a "I agree with you" button more often.

    The thanks button was whatever you wanted it to be. That's what I liked about it. I also liked being bombarded with information. Variety is the spice of life.
